Film

Samuel Beckett, the celebrated author of Waiting for Godot, made exactly one work of cinematic art—this 22-minute, silent collaboration with Buster Keaton from 1965. Surreal and existential, it consists largely of Keaton sitting in a dismal room, trying not to be seen while staring at a parrot and covering mirrors with a black tarp. Newly restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive in cooperation with the British Film Institute. Double-featured with the documentary Notfilm. 22 minutes Unrated.
